"Still, if Dunham were to say to Remnick and Apatow, "Guys, you know what would be awesome? If we did a movie or an entire issue of a magazine or dedicated the whole New Yorker festival to conversations about centralizing racial representation in media," they would likely listen, and that would be radical." » 10/24/14 10:11am Yesterday 10:11am

Looking at the position description, it doesn't seem like the master's degree is something that would overqualify you. Rather, I think it helps to demonstrate your ability to self-manage projects as well as your writing skills. I'd definitely leave it in. » 10/23/14 5:01pm Thursday 5:01pm

I think that's a harsh interpretation of what the OP is saying. Being shy doesn't necessarily mean you don't want to do something, it could also mean you lack the courage to do it. Perhaps his/her parents making him hug his grandparents taught him/her that there wasn't anything to be afraid of and helped him/her… » 10/23/14 4:26pm Thursday 4:26pm

TV Talk: What Shows are On Your "Will Watch" List?

I love TV. LOVE it. I am not a movie person, and pretty much the only movies I ever see are fantasy ones or possibly ones about a different era like "Belle" or "Jane Eyre". My friend and I once tried to do an Oscar movie marathon the week before they were out, and I wanted to kill myself about 10 minutes into… » 10/23/14 1:57pm Thursday 1:57pm

I wanted to like Flash Forward so bad. It was an interesting premise and had actors I liked. But it was so uneven and a lot of times super boring. It reminded me of how like once a week I say "That SNL skit was a great idea, poorly executed." Welcome to SNL skit territory, Flash Forward. » 10/23/14 10:30am Thursday 10:30am

I wonder...does this lend any weight to the idea that while Dorne will be important later on in the series, the Iron Islands really will not? I think there's certainly a lot of dead weight in the Iron Islands storyline (as there obviously is in every storyline_, but it's been so long since we've seen Balon, I think… » 10/23/14 7:09am Thursday 7:09am

A few years back, my brother and a bunch of his friends were in town for a football game (Nebraska vs. Northwestern). We went to a bar, where my brother looked at the beer menu and tried ordering two Foster's Oil Cans, only to be told they were out. So he went back to the menu and ordered two Colt .45s instead. … » 10/22/14 3:56pm Wednesday 3:56pm

"Without changing things in Game of Thrones, we would never have had as much of Jerome Flynn's delightful Bronn as we have, or the palpable shock of seeing Shae show up to give a testimony at Tyrion's trial in The Law of Gods and Men (already a great episode, made even better by such a surprise for a book reader… » 10/22/14 3:17pm Wednesday 3:17pm

Not necessarily. I do a lunge 3 pack, where I do straight walking lunges, lunges at an angle, and then side lunges. I do them back to back and don't typically rest between sets because they work slightly different muscles, and I'd say they take probably 2 or more minutes. I have strong legs, but I'm not freakish, by… » 10/21/14 6:35pm Tuesday 6:35pm

Do you suppose when she goes out, all the security guards are basically toting giant towels/blankets, ready to make a privacy screen the instant her mouth starts watering in that horrifying pre-vomit way? If so I would like to hire princess services for the day after my work holiday party this year. » 10/21/14 5:46pm Tuesday 5:46pm

In the first half of last season, I mentioned on one of these reviews that I would like to see them expand the cast a little more. While Abbie and Ichabod are clearly the main part of the show, we had hardly any supporting characters, and I felt like the show suffered for it. I thought we were going in the right… » 10/21/14 12:04pm Tuesday 12:04pm

One solution I see people use is to divide work histories. So say you have a section for "Relevant Work Experience", where you talk a little more extensively about the baking experience you have had, and then an "Other Work Experience" section, where you essentially just list dates and positions for your other less… » 10/21/14 1:37pm Tuesday 1:37pm
